Ethiopian forces launch counterattack in Somalia, Jihad Watch, December 24, 2006.
MOGADISHU, Somalia - Ethiopia launched an attack Sunday on Somalia's powerful Islamic movement, sending fighter jets across the border and bombarding several towns in a major escalation of the violence that threatens to engulf the Horn of Africa.
"After too much patience, the Ethiopian government has taken a self-defensive measure and has begun counterattacking the aggressive extremist forces of the (Islamic council) and foreign terrorist groups," said Ethiopia's foreign affairs spokesman, Solomon Abebe.
Here's hoping Ethiopia doesn't have an equivalent of Israel's Olmert at the helm, making them cease fire before the jihadi threat is eradicated. Wish them luck! If they succeed, they could set an example for others to follow.
